1. Thompson House Marker
Inscription.  

Built by Judge G. Thompson in the early 1840's on the south bank of the Red River at Presto Road.

In 1942 it was bought by Ms. Nellie Chambers and moved east of Denison to save it from the advancing waters of the newly formed Lake Texoma.

Upon her death, her heirs donated the home to the Village.

It was moved to it's present location and restored in 1986.
